A lovely well maintained cottage on a working croft. Almost silent the vast majority of the time and some good walks from the cottage. The enclosed garden has a standard wire fence so you may want to consider a tether if your dog is nosey as the sheep can be very close at times. Ours didn't know what to make of them.

A beautiful private cottage, which was well equipped with everything you need. Whilst rural, it is set in a stunning location close to many unspoiled beaches like Clashnessie, Clachtol and Achmelvich. The bay of Cullen is within view and walking distance.

Lochinver is only 20 mins away if you need to stock up and the pie shop is well worth a visit Hide

We had a lovely week away, its a great location for getting away from everything. The cottage was plenty big enough for our needs and we especially enjoyed sitting in the garden looking at the stunning views.

We had a wonderful weeks stay here in this cosy home, we had everything we needed.

A beautiful, warm and very well equipped cottage in an absolutely stunning part of the Highlands. We spent two weeks in mid October at the 19th Century Schoolhouse and it was time and money very well spent.

The cottage is very comfortable but don't expect to be able to let your dogs run free in the garden. The fencing is trodden down, the garden wall is broken with a very big low gap and the wooden garden gate does not close properly. Such a shame our week was spoilt by having to keep our dogs tethered in the garden!

Beautiful location and well equipped cottage with fabulous views North to the mountains and breathtaking views just along the road. Easy to make warm and cosy.

Fabulous cottage, great location, certainly feel like you are getting away from it all! The road from Lochinver to the cottage is fun but does take a while, would recommend stocking up so its not a daily trip for supplies! The cottage had everything you could need in terms of equipment (and more!) but you do need to pick up fuel for fire.
